Soroptimist International of Dundas Ancaster Flamborough has been serving our community for over 25 years. We are inviting the community to join us on March 27th, 6-9 pm at Amica on Dundas.
We delighted to be joined by Denise Doyle from the YWCA who will share with us about the Encore program and women’s health. We are also looking forward to hearing from Karen DeSilva, a past winner of the Women’s Opportunity Award and co-founder of WISDOM: Women, Inspiring, Strength, Determination, Optimism, and Motivation to women in addictions and need. We look forward to hearing how her education has positively impacted her life.
We are also honoured to introduce Jennifer Lucking representing Walk With Me who will be speaking on Education and Awareness of Human Trafficking. It is also hoped that one of her Board Directors, Lepa Jankovic of the RCMP, will also be in attendance. You will hear Jennifer tell us how Timea Nagy, herself a survivor of trafficking , started the organisation and is now considered to be a leading authority on human trafficking. So much so that she was awarded The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for her services to victims and the authorities. Human trafficking or trafficking in persons is one of the most heinous crimes imaginable, often described as a modern day form of slavery. It happens right here in the Hamilton area! Walk With Me Canada Victim Services is a survivor led organization dedicated to raising awareness and providing education on issues of slavery, delivering and coordinating services supporting “victims to become survivors,” and advocating action for change.
This is a free event. All are welcome. Light refreshments will be provided.
